it’s 39 degrees…

…at twilight on the first Saturday of March in Bozman. Strong winds blew all the water out of the cove on Friday, and I watched it stay out all day long. We could lose some oysters if it freezes tonight. But it’s been warm, and cherry trees have been blooming for a month in Easton. Daylight wakes me earlier each day, and the birds are deafening.

Spring returns. Welcome back, old friend.


Krista Tippett coming to Easton’s Avalon Theatre

•October 4, 2016 • Leave a Comment

I’ve been listening to Krista Tippett‘s fantastic public radio show On Being, and its previous iteration Speaking of Faith, for what feels like 20 years. It’s fabulous. We’re so lucky that she is coming to Easton in November for an onstage conversation with tech entrepreneur Anil Dash. Tickets are cheap – $15 for general admission and $35 for general admission and an autographed copy of Krista’s beautiful new book Becoming Wise. Their conversation will be about civility in technology. We could use some more civility in everything, especially technology, these days. I can’t wait!

Here’s a link to a Ted talk on compassion Krista did in 2010, and a Washington Post story about her new book from earlier this year.

If you’re a public radio fan and live anywhere around Delmarva, you’re going to want to come to this. Click below for tickets.

August Tomatoes by Don Ziegler

August Tomatoes

Having cycled a zillion years
Or two
I need to pinch myself.
Am I in heaven?
In between?
Or have I really returned
Into the summer fields of Lancaster County?
Over my head in sweet corn.
Butter, salt on the skin of my chin.
Down breeze of sun dried alfalfa.
How can I tell them?
The way muskmelon melts under the nose.
The roar of August tomatoes.
How Katydids hammer the oak trees at night.
How the cicada spirals my body outward
Singing me back to the Light.



I could be present in the beautiful moment…

…..but instead I seem to have been squinting and texting on the dock last evening, the only August 9th of the year.


Thanks for the reminder, KG.

Check out this article, coming out in Sunday’s NYTimes. And while you’re contemplating that question, let’s revisit the beautiful piece by Lynn Tomlinson about Holland Island, which is now long lost, sunk into the #chesbay.
